Following the Christchurch mass shooting the Prime Minster of New Zealand promises massive changes to the gun laws in the country including the banning of semi automatic weapons. She states that banning semi-automatic weapons – firearms that fire a single bullet with each trigger pull is, “certainly one of the issues that I’m looking at with immediate effect.”
The Tribunist writes that In the wake of the Christchurch mass shooting – where 49 people were killed, and dozens more were wounded – New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern declared that gun laws in the country “will change.” The gunman was carrying five guns during the attack, reported as “two semi-automatic weapons, two shotguns, and one lever-action firearm.”
